A simple Siri hack essentially allows users to control their vehicles with their voices. Using the Viper Control plugin and Siri Proxy, Brandon Fiquett uploaded a video on YouTube demonstrating the capabilities of Apple’s voice-activated technology when it’s been connected to a Cobra remote starter. The video shows Fiquett starting and stopping the ignition of his Acura TL car by simply speaking these commands into his iPhone using the Siri app.

Fiquett explains that the “command is sent from Siri to a Viper server, then relayed via cellular connection to the car. The car then broadcasts an update via RF to the key chain remote.” The hack can also lock and unlock the car and also pop open the trunk.

Watch the video below to see it in action:
